Abstract: After experiencing the "memories of youth" in the early military life, the "diaspora context" of studying abroad and immigration, and then "world of mortals" in looking back at the old country, Yan Geling's novel creations have formed their own style. In these novels full of women's experience, Yan Geling has always hidden the conscious or unconscious incorporation and absorption of the trend of thought of the times. The evolution of women's images through historical periods shows the gradual development of women's "spiritual subject construction" and it reveals the writer's intention to seek female self-salvation.

Key words: female image, evolution, spiritual subject, significance
